Rocambolsec - Ice cream for the last days of summer!


Sheep's milk cheese with guayaba sauce, dulce de leche and cotton candy.

Oh yes, I have been lazy.

I did work through plenty of my summer holidays, but if I didn't necessarily look lazy, then I definitely felt it. But what is summer for if not for banishing feelings of guilt and indulging in a little hedonism?

At least that's what I told myself as i prepared to eat this monster of an ice cream cone from haute-gelatería Rocambolesc, the new ice cream parlor recently opened in the Spanish city of Girona by the three-Michelin star, second-best restaurant in the world, El Celler de Can Roca

This cutesy, retro and somewhat whimsical shop offers six flavors of soft-serve style, natural ice cream that is made in the world renowned restaurant and transported to the shop by bicycle. As indecisive as ever, I tasted the sheep's milk cheese flavor (delicious, like a fresh yoghurt), baked apple (uncanny how it exactly recalled the flavor of the fruit), and the rich Tahitian vanilla. The other three flavors were chocolate, apricot and cherries. Decisions, decisions!

The best part of all was in trying to choose three toppings from the massive selection of homemade sauces, cookies, brownies, chocolates, candies and, everybody's favorite, freshly whipped-up cotton candy!

Tahitian vanilla with chocolate sauce, coconut clouds and caramelized hazelnuts.

In Spain, nothing like Kalise´s ice creams! Made in the Canaries and transported to the Península by bicycle too.

True! But then the cotton candy gets wet!

All those sweets are sumptuous! But make sure you don't eat too much as they could cause teeth stains. I just recently had my teeth whitening in Los Angeles so even though I'm tempted to eat cotton candies too, I have to maintain my recent dental procedure.

My friend from dental seo marketing services advised me to try this ice cream after my treatment from my dentist. I was happy and relieved then, for this technique worked for me!
